Caternia, thank you for the "double dose" of devotionals today. We read the Romans verse daily, it is so nice to know our prayers don't have to be perfect that God always knows what we are trying to say.
We had such a nice church service again today, for lent they are doing something different and have what you might call "stations". You can move around to the different ones as you wish, light a candle and remember someone in prayer, lay a stone at the base of our wooden cross ( its the same one on Good Friday we place each a nail into as we leave church), someone places a prayer shawl around our shoulders and pray with us, place a prayer request on the branches of small trees in front of the church, stop at the Baptismal font to remember our Baptism, take Holy Communion, and another table that has different information on each week of a community service we can do. This week it was about bagging meals to send to Africa. The one minister had made up one of the meals that we could try, it was really tasty but it is suppose to feed a family of 6 for a day and the women make it go for a week. Needless to say I think it was a very moving service, this is worked into the regular service.
Will check back later and see what all have been doing today. Gloria
